USC routed Stanford on Wednesday night and kept itself in position to win the Pac-12.
So what does Andy Enfield do? Whine about the schedule.
“It is disappointing that Oregon doesn’t have to play UCLA in Pauley (Pavilion) like they were supposed to, but that’s all I really can say,” Enfield said after the Stanford game.
All he can say? Why can’t he say more since he decided to bring it up?
More importantly, did Enfield forget we are in a pandemic?
We just had a football season where all teams did not play each other. Washington was forced to give up its spot in the Pac-12 championship game vs. USC. Oregon finished second in the Pac-12 North and is Pac-12 champions.
Crazy stuff happened because of COVID-19.
But the main point was to simply have some type of a season.
And the Pac-12 has had myriad COVID issues during basketball season.
Enfield shows (again) he is a dolt even under good conditions.
Should Oregon coach Dana Altman say, “It’s disappointing Stanford and Arizona State were missing multiple starters vs. USC?”
USC played four games in eight days, including two in high altitude (Colorado, Utah). That’s not ideal but it’s part of the business of surviving during a pandemic.
Oregon just played 7 games in 14 days (three on the road) against 5 of the top 6 teams in the Pac-12.
Is everything fair? Nope. Is everything equal? Nope.
Should a coach whine about it after a 37-point victory? Nope.
